I think of Business Mentoring as very different to coaching.
Mentoring is reactive where I am responding to my clients’ requests and requirements, while coaching is proactive where I am leading my client toward their goals.
As such, mentoring is slower and the process (meetings) takes longer as each one stands alone. It does however mean that mentoring can be less frequent: coaching meetings more than two weeks apart really don’t work, whereas mentoring can be monthly and even as little as quarterly and still be beneficial.
Often a good coaching relationship can evolve into a good mentoring relationship over time, several of my best clients over the last fifteen years have moved on to mentoring and some of those have even gone on to develop their own coaching business.
Your role as the mentee
To be successful as a mentee, you must be highly self-motivated and disciplined. In addition to being able to produce your own goals and milestones, you must also be prepared to apply and act on systems and direction without follow-up and you must take responsibility for your own actions and outcomes.
Further you must be willing to take the leadership role in the coaching relationship in order to drive the process forward both with your coach and with your team.
Finally you must be willing to take the knowledge and experience that you gain and share it with others in your team.
You must have a clear vision for the future of your business and you must be the champion and chief storyteller of that vision, in short you must become the leader of a team that wants to follow your direction.
